Luxury self-catering accommodation in Oxfordshire

A big pull of this county is the ancient city of Oxford, with its gleaming spires and famous university; but once the bags are unpacked there are also rolling hills and tiny towns to explore from a gorgeous cottage.

Renting a private house in the verdant Oxfordshire countryside makes for a great long weekend. Encircled by the cities of Bristol, London and Birmingham, this area has the benefits of both town and country. Set down the cases in a historic townhouse tucked away in a picturesque village (think pretty stone houses with village greens), lace up the walking boots and head out to sprawling pastures and wildflower meadows. Explore on horseback, by rental bike, or from a punt on the River Thames, with a follow-up picnic on the bank as a reward for all that arm-work. 

Larger parties can book a luxury mansion then pop out to visit another, such as Blenheim Palace, a World Heritage Site and birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. Garden-lovers will enjoy Oxford Botanic Garden, the first of its kind in the UK, set in 130 acres of stunning landscape. Families can rent a country cottage to enjoy a special occasion, and children will love watching the planes go 'whoosh' overhead at the Abingdon Air & Country Show. Foodies may prefer to whip up a tasty supper, or sample the fine food and local ales from one of the many nearby village pubs.
